Projects, dreams, this year more than ever I should do a post on Theatre Day. Maybe you wonder why. The answer is pretty simple. I love theatre as much as I love any other manifestations of literature. Some of my teacher would say I use to mutter when I disagree with their procedures of teaching or the ideas expressed by the authors. But, I'm like this. If I don't protest, I wouldn't be me.
Now that I have this means I would like to thanks all of them for the effort put on me. THANK YOU!
I could about you about the origins of theatre and how many Greek tragedies I have read (actually I have read them all) and the origin of English theatre on float as our Easter's parade, where religions representations are performed. No, I'm not going to do that. Not even bother you about the beginning of Greek theatre as mere dance representations, and the development to the circle theatre to our nowadays semicircle one.
This post goes mainly to my brother who is fighting to find his place on this artistic world. Here you are a link to his blog and his entry to World Theatre Day
A couple of years ago I have the honour to meet Azucena Alonso and even enjoyed her in one of her performances Tres Deseos, a cabaret where your dreams came true. Nowadays, Azucena, is not just an actress that I admire, she is also a friend.
Lately I have had the chance to meet 2.0 friends. I have the opportunity to meet Fernando J. López on the signing of his book Las vidas que inventamos
Fernando is also a playwrighter. At the moment, one of his plays is on stage at El Sol de York, Cuando fuimos dos.
There are two more people that I would like to meet one day: Juan Caballero and Alberto Arcos. You will get to know more about them on their personal webs.
World Theatre Day should be every day. We'll see each other at the theatre!
